Sportradar announced today that they have signed an agreement with the Thai Premier League Company Limited, where Sportradar will deploy its Fraud Detection System (FDS). Doing so will allow them to monitor any betting activity related to the Toyota Thai Premier League 2014/2015 season.
The agreement was reached due to Sportradar's existing partnerships around Asia as well as with the Asian Football Confederation and Football Federation Australia. Under the agreement, Sportradar will analyze and detect potential fraud or similar in the betting behaviour and patterns for all of the 380 games of the season, which also includes games already played in this season.
Speaking about the partnership, Sportradar’s Managing Director Strategy and Integrity Andreas Krannich said: “Thailand has been recognised by the AFC as a Tier One League, commercially and professionally speaking. It is encouraging that with this maturity comes a recognition of the importance of integrity. The Toyota Thai Premier League is taking the front foot to ensure that its competition can be trusted and enjoyed by fans. We are delighted that they in turn have trusted us to support their commitment and we look forward to working with them this year”.
At the signing ceremony, President of the Toyota Thai Premier League Ong-Arj Kosinkar added: “The integrity of the Toyota Thai Premier League and its matches is paramount. We will not compromise on this. As we grow the popularity of this competition, it is important that we remain vigilant to dangers. This is why we immediately looked to Sportradar. Their Fraud Detection System is trusted by federations, leagues and sports around the world and their support and expertise will bolster our defences. Sportradar will give us the inside track and that is invaluable as our league goes from strength to strength”
